On the 10th of July it will be my last time wearing a military uniform, and since I was 18 I have wore a military uniform I enlisted at 17 and when I started this journey, to me it was just a short stint. Some was active some was guard or reserve. I never intended for it to go on this long but it did serving 5 years on active duty 4 years in the Marines and the 1 year with the Army Reserve in Iraq. Going 12 years with the Guard and 4 years with the Reserves
I have gone to South Korea, and Okinawa. Honduras and Iraq. From North Carolina to California. From the Marines to the National Guard and then to the Army reserve. My uncle took me every where. And it all comes down to this one last day. When I put on the uniform for the last time on the 10th I will retire. Gonna be a little bit difficult and kinda lost but I promised my wife and daughter that this would be my last rodeo.
